second amendment rights and the second amendment rights of our law-abiding law-ag citizens. we have seen the newtown parents here in washington bravely telling their stories. they deserve better than this body turning their backs on them. the families of aurora deserve better than this body turning their backs on them. the families of more than 30 people who die every single day at the hands of gun violence deserve more from this body. my friends, it is simply time to act. today is the day for this body to show the american people that their voices matter. that when 90% of americans demand us to expand background checks, that we can deliver. we should be able to agree today that we no longer need military-style weapons and ammunition clips on our streets. and we should be able to agree today that it's time to crack down on the illegal handguns being trafficked in our streets into the hands of criminals. four years ago, i met the parents of naisha pryor yard. naisha was a beautiful 17-year-old honor student killed in the prime of her life by an illegal handgun when she was just spending t
control act? wouldn't it be appropriate for us to know what measures have to be taken in case existing law continues to prevail? >> we are -- yes, it is. we do. for example, i noted in my testimony we will be coming up to the congress a significant package of reprogramming request, which we have worked with the congress on. >> it's one thing to have reprogramming request. it's another thing to submit a budget, overall bijt that reflects the reality of the law as it is today rather than sending us a budget that has restoration of cuts that so far there's been no movement or action to rerepeal. i think we need to know what happens if we don't repeal. it's in your interest, in my view, to give us that information as to what would happen if we just simply comply with existing law. >> well, i want to address both the points. one, we are continuing to do that, senator. and as part of marty's testimony, part of my testimony on what we are doing and explaining working with committees here in the house and the senate on we continue -- don't make the change what will be requested. for example, suppl
in for a long time. the law requires that. beyond that we don't know for sure. we have had difficult negotiations over the second part that have the guest worker program and make sure that it's both at will and contract so it serves all of agricultural. because we know at some point we need additional workers beyond the highly trained skilled workers that are currently doing the work in the country that are likely to get a blue card. there will be additional workers needed down the road. we have to a viable worker program. the current program is not that program. if we have the blue card program in our existing h2a we would be back here in a few years, senator, telling you we have a big problem. >> my time is . >> that's what we've got avoid. we have to make sure we don't make the same mistake as 1986. >> thank you. we have two unique situations on the committee, as we mentioned with senator cornyn who had to be absent and all of us understand why. there's no question he should have been in texas and was. the other senator feinstein who is handled the ag negotiations. both will be gi
by will you -- must include the contributions of the transgendered? by law. you will have to have pages on transgendered contributions. people who were crossed over sex, or dressed in the other sex. clothing. isn't that absurd? isn't that totalitarian? i thought the purpose of the textbook was to tell the truth, not make groups feel good. but as i point out in the book, leftism is overwhelmingly rooted in feelings. >> host: dennis prager is the author. "still the best hope" is the name of his recent best seller. louis from florida, you're on the air. you're talking with dennis prager. >> caller: i'd like to ask mr. prayinger and his ilk what he just said about truth, why should people believe the bible when that's the biggest novel ever written? who believes the earth is 5,000 years old? how can you follow a book that tells you the world is 5,000 years old and hisclass commentary about the christian schools and the seminary, how does he say something like that and he wants to be honest? i know this man is a right winger, and he wouldn't fifth credit to anybody, but my main question is,
and the district of columbia that do not recognize some form of conceal gun carry law. in other words, it is part of the public policy of 49 states that conceal handgun licenses may be obtained by lawful owners. our amendment would allow persons with concealed handgun permits to carry those weapons as they travel between jurisdictions and not -- and avoid any sort of prosecution. this does not create a national standard. it does not apply to jurisdictions that don't otherwise recognize the right to conceal carry. and it would act, in effect, like a driver's license so you don't have to get a separate driver's license in each state that you travel through. and for those who believe background checks that are important, this is background checks on steroids. i'd ask my colleagues to support the amendment. mr. schumer: mr. president? the presiding officer: the senator from new york. mr. schumer: yeah, this amendment would wreak havoc in large portions of america, suburban and urban areas. now, the bottom line is very simple. wyoming, maybe concealed carry works. every police officer in america -- a
